[VIS, BV, UV] Sanvitalia procumbens: visible, ultraviolet, bee vision

Sanvitalia procumbens shots using the CERCO 94mm lens, mod. Xenon flash, ISO200/400, 1/125s, f5.6. The needed adjustments were done by adjusting the flash energy and using a ND filter for the VIS shot.

Baader UV/IR CUT filter (VIS):

XBV3-filter (BV bee vision):

Baader U - filter (UV):

Interesting to note, that the lower flower has much less of an UV pattern maybe denoting a different ripening status?

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
